The Who Release New Song, Brand New Full Length Coming in November

Just like last month, when our Masters spotlight artist Neil Young announced a brand new Crazy Horse album, this months artists, The Who, announce their first album in thirteen Years.

WHO (cleverly titled) is the first record of new material since the awful Endless Wire and while RtBE loves the band, we do not have high hopes for this full length. Townshend talked about the album:
“This album is almost all new songs written last year, with just two exceptions. There is no theme, no concept, no story, just a set of songs that I (and my brother Simon) wrote to give Roger Daltrey some inspiration, challenges and scope for his newly revived singing voice. Roger and I are both old men now, by any measure, so I’ve tried to stay away from romance, but also from nostalgia if I can. I didn’t want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Memories are OK, and some of the songs refer to the explosive state of things today. I made new home studio demos of all these songs in the summer of 2018 using a wide collection of instruments old and new. We started recording as The Who in March 2019, and have finished now in late August just in time to make some vinyl………maybe even some cassettes……ready for release in November”.

The first song "Ball & Chain" has been released and you can listen to it:
